Discover Fond Doux Plantation & Resort, a 19th century eco-friendly colonial plantation nestled in the heart of Soufriere, St Lucia. The plantation resort is situated amidst a 250 year-old working plantation, featuring an assortment of fifteen uniquely crafted cottages, two onsite restaurants, spa, boutique, historical cocoa drying trays and a collage of outdoor swimming pools. We are conveniently located just minutes away from the island’s main attractions: The Sulphur Springs - the Caribbean’s only “drive-in volcano”, The Pitons and the best diving sites on island all within the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Much of the land on the estate is utilized to grow fruits, flowers and vegetables – all of which are used in Fond Doux Plantation & Resort’s two restaurants. These include star apples, pawpaws, zabòka avocados, mangoes, grapefruit, bananas, love apples, breadfruit, coconuts, cinnamon, sour-sop, golden apple, sugar cane, limes, tangerine, oranges, apricots, cherries, plums, wax apples and gwiyav guava – not to mention our famous cocoa. The property is totally committed to self-sufficiency and invites you to get involved.
All of our cottages have been built and designed with minimum impact in mind. No machinery was used when constructing these 15 stunning residences – all excavation was performed with loads of elbow grease and shovels only. Adding to the water and power conservation, it is little wonder that England’s Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla visited the estate in 2008, with the environment so close to the Prince’s heart.
Fond Doux Plantation & Resort is one of the only resorts in St. Lucia to have been certified both as an organic plantation and as a member of Green Globe.
I loved the serenity of the place, all the cottages spaced out with many being totally secluded. The grounds were lovely to wander around especially the hike up to the top of the plantation with the view of the pitons. The hospitality of the owners.
The cottage we stayed in could have had a few more utensils etc but as we weren't there to self cater it didn't really matter.

We stayed at fond doux planatation earlier this year and that was the best honeymoon ever. The plantation life was to die for, the flowers were so beautiful oh gosh i've never seen so much beauty. The cottages was spotless and the scent of the flowers were breath taking. Oh how could i have forgotten A and the restaurant staff , the service was great and the food was so tasty. We would recommond fond doux to any one who loves nature. We will be back with friends next year
